Tennis Open 2020

The Tennis Open 2020: An Overview

The Tennis Open 2020 has been one of the most anticipated tournaments in recent years. With so many top-ranked players participating, the level of competition is expected to be very high, and the matches are bound to be very exciting. The tournament is scheduled to start on August 31, 2020, and will run until September 13, 2020.

The tournament will be held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City, which is the same venue that hosts the US Open every year. However, there will be some changes to the tournament this year, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Changes to the Tournament

Perhaps the most significant change to the Tennis Open 2020 is the absence of several top players. The pandemic has forced some players to withdraw from the tournament due to various reasons, including health concerns. The most notable absentee from the tournament is defending champion Rafael Nadal, who decided not to participate due to health concerns.

Another notable absence is six-time champion Serena Williams, who was forced to pull out of the tournament due to an injury. Other players who have withdrawn from the tournament include Stan Wawrinka, Nick Kyrgios, and Ashleigh Barty.

Despite the absence of some top players, the tournament will still feature some of the best players in the world. Novak Djokovic and Karolina Pliskova are the top-seeded players in the men’s and women’s draws, respectively. Other notable players include Roger Federer, Naomi Osaka, and Simona Halep.

Safety Measures

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Tennis Open 2020 will be held under strict safety protocols. All players and officials will be required to undergo regular COVID-19 testing, and anyone who tests positive will be barred from the tournament.

Players will also be required to follow social distancing guidelines during the tournament. They will be required to wear masks when not on the court, and will not be allowed to share towels, drinks, or any other items.

The tournament will be played without any spectators, which is a major departure from the traditional US Open. However, the matches will be broadcast on television and online, so fans can still watch their favorite players in action.

Tournament Format

The Tennis Open 2020 will feature the singles, doubles, and mixed doubles events. The men’s and women’s singles events will feature 128 players each, while the doubles and mixed doubles events will feature 64 teams each.

The tournament will follow the traditional Grand Slam format, with matches played over five sets for men and three sets for women. However, in an effort to minimize the risk of injury and fatigue, the men’s matches will be played over three sets instead of the traditional five sets.


With so many top players absent from the tournament, it’s hard to predict who will win the Tennis Open 2020. Novak Djokovic is the favorite to win the men’s singles event, having won the tournament three times before. Other contenders include Roger Federer, Daniil Medvedev, and Stefanos Tsitsipas.

In the women’s singles event, Karolina Pliskova is the top seed and the favorite to win. However, with so many top players absent from the tournament, it’s anyone’s guess who will come out on top. Other contenders include Naomi Osaka, Simona Halep, and Petra Kvitova.


The Tennis Open 2020 promises to be an exciting tournament, even with the absence of some top players. With strict safety protocols in place, fans can look forward to watching some of the best players in the world showcase their skills. It remains to be seen who will emerge victorious, but one thing is for sure – the Tennis Open 2020 will be a tournament to remember.
